Things are cheaper in Delhi. And in comparison you pay much for anything in a mini metro. Same thing for Bangalore pal, so donít panic

One would think the Govt. would lower the taxes on fuel to soften the impact, but then again, who am I kidding...this is afterall the Indian Govt. The poor guys need the money to pad their mattresses and pillows.

I don't think Govt. can keep the prices low any further. In fact, going by soaring current prices of crude oil in international market, Petrol/diesel could have been dearer. In last 3 years alone, the crude oil prices have shot up by more than 250%. Oil prices in india are kept low, thanks to the politicians, who care for votes, if not for common man!
